28. Sir J. POWER

asked the Minister of Transport the amount expected to be expended out of the Road Fund during the present financial year and, for comparison, the amount actually expended during each of the five previous years?

Colonel ASHLEY

As the reply involves a number of figures I will, with my hon. Friend's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the information:

The estimated net payments from the Road Fund for the year ending 31st March, 1928, are £19,800,000, exclusive of any transfer to the Exchequer in pursuance of the Resolution of the House of Commons of the 11th April last.
